Reapplying for my job

Hi, wondered if anyone knows the answer to this. I have been working for the same company since 2004.  Due to company restructuring, I will have to reapply for my job. If I'm successful, does my statutory redundancy still apply from 2004 or does it start from the day I take on my new / same job and I lose all them years redundancy pay out. 1 week per year etc.  
Thank you

    Continuity of service applies so original start date.
    Why you need to apply they should be using a selection process if there are too many people for the jobs available.

    Lots of companies make you apply for the job if there are to many, they can use that as part of the selection process.  Some make you apply for your own job.

    Making people apply is the wrong process. for your own job you should be included automatically
    For other jobs you should only need to ask to be considered so you can determine if it is a suitable alternative once the full details of the position are available .

    Once you apply for jobs you lose some of your rights under the redundancy processes like trial periods and redundancy pay if you decide you don't like the job and get offered it..

    Even in the government advice on redundancy it states you can be asked to apply for your own job and they can use that to help decide who to keep. You don't lose any of your rights. They are using it for the selection process.
